Late last year, the very first residents moved into their new homes at Lochaven in Cranbourne West, just in time for Christmas.
Amongst the residents were first home buyers, Jessica and Tommy who are enjoying the first days they spend in their new home.
“We’re very excited to have moved into our new home at Lochaven, we’ve started checking out the local supermarkets. Everything we need is nearby and very convenient,” said Jess.
“The community is coming together nicely, we already have a couple of neighbours in our street. We cannot wait for future amenities to be built too, having a supermarket, school and park within walking distance of our home, will be a great as we settle into our home.”
Shortly after beginning their search to find a home, the bright colours of Lochaven’s logo caught Jessica’s eye.
“We had been driving around the Cranbourne area, when we saw Lochaven’s logo. We visited the sales office and really liked what the community had to offer. We quickly decided it was the perfect place for us to build our home and booked an appointment at the release which was just 2 days later,” said Jessica.
“We always wanted to live in Cranbourne, it’s a new area with lots of things to do. The estates were also smaller offering us the charm of living in a secluded community.”
When they began selecting a builder, Jessica and Tommy were looking for a home, that would suit their individual needs. For Jessica, an alfresco and big pantry were particularly important. The couple also wanted a floorplan that had the Master Bedroom in the middle of the house.
“We wanted a floorplan that would support our lifestyle, this helped us narrow down our search to just a few builders. That’s why we chose to build a single storey, 3-bedroom home with Beachwood,” said Jessica.
Jessica who works as a chef at the MCG, and Tommy who studies gaming design and arts in the city, both plan to commute to work using the local train station, which is just a short walk away.
“The local train station is well-serviced and will make it easy for us to get to the city each day,” said Jessica.
The couple, are looking forward to seeing more residents move into the streets surrounding their home and are particularly excited for Lochaven’s creek lands to be brought to life.
“I grew up in Keysborough, which had a really nice lake near our home. I cannot wait for the parks and walking paths to be created, it will make the community such a beautiful place to live.”
